Along with an uploaded photo of Lisa Marie sharing a laugh with Elvis star Austin Butler, Luhrmann said: “Over the past year the entire Elvis movie family and I have felt the privilege of Lisa’s loving embrace. Married.

“His sudden and shocking loss has devastated people all over the world. I know his fans everywhere join me in sharing prayers of love and support with his mother, Priscilla, and her wonderful daughters Riley, Finley and Harper.

Then, addressing his words to the late singer-songwriter, he added, “Lisa Marie, your warmth, your smile, your love will be missed.”

For Friday’s occasion, Baz looked handsome with his silver-grey cut in a neat cut with wispy pieces up top.

He dressed conservatively in a black suit with a white button-up shirt, thin black tie, and black dress shoes.

His face was clean shaven except for a neatly manicured mustache as he stayed close to Catherine, who looked stunning in a black lace dress with matching cardigan.

She smiled while supporting her spouse, donning a pair of oversized matte black glasses.

On Thursday, Presley was rushed to hospital in critical condition and was believed to have been in a coma following “complete cardiac arrest” shortly after complaining of stomach pains, according to TMZ.

The 54-year-old attended the Golden Globe Awards on Tuesday, Jan. 10, alongside Luhrmann and his mother Priscilla, where Austin Butler won Best Actor for his portrayal of his father.

Shortly after her death, Priscilla, who was at her daughter’s side, said in a statement: ‘It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us.

“She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known. We ask for confidentiality as we try to come to terms with this profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers. For the moment, there will be no further comment.
